Project Description

The Galena Creek Bridge is a twin 1725 foot long, cast-in-place, conventionally reinforced concrete box girder bridge with a cathedral arched main span of 689 feet. The twin bridges pass 295 feet over the Galena Creek below. The concrete cathedral arch of this bridge sets a record as the largest of its kind in the world.
